A kitchen nightmare for any Spaniard. The Tortilla Española was unbearable, it was a thin tortilla, with no flavour whatsoever and the potatoes weren’t even fully cooked. The patatas bravas were way too spicy, and the cremà catalana hadn’t properly set. The only thing that was okay were the chistorras, but it’s difficult to make those wrong as it’s just a matter of heating them on a pan. We luckily didn’t ordered for a paella or another of the rice dishes. If 3 of the basic tapas and a straightforward dessert were so bad executed, we didn’t even wanted to think about how the others would be. The service was good, it’s a pity the food wasn’t.

Called in without a booking, managed to get a seat by the bar: it was very busy.
The service was friendly and (as usual in Holland) the English spoken was excellent.
We started by sharing a portion of croquettes of cheese and spinach, not too heavy and flavoursome. We followed this with two interesting mains: suckling pig and oven cooked goat, both were tasty and well cooked, a lot of bones but then you need to expect this with stewed smaller animals.
Overall a very nice meal, tasty and friendly service: recommended.

We ate here with our two children (ages 4 and 6). Cozy and small but not constricted at all, nobody batted an eye at the kids walking in and out of the door. Generous portions of hearty food, will definitely go again.

Not in a touristy spot. We didn't have reservations but they fit us in. I would recommend reservations for the weekend.
The food was delicious and the service beyond friendly and nice. Comfortable atmosphere. We got a little lost walking to the restaurant and stopped to a gentleman for directions, he told us how to get there and said we made a great choice...he was right!

We have been here for about 5 times in 2 years and every time the food and service is consistently good.

You will feel really treated as a guest here, everything is done with care and with a friendly touch. Don't expect fancy food or decorrating, but just as it should be, loose.

I can really recommend the Zarzuela, it's a 2 person dinner.
